Watch Kobe Bryant Talk on Perseverance, Overcoming Fear And Chasing Your Dreams.



Kobe Bryant may be gone, but his signature “Mamba Mentality” lives on. “You are responsible for how people remember you,” Bryant said in 2017. “If you do it right, your game will live on in others… So leave everything on the court. Leave the game better than you found it. And when it comes time for you to leave, leave a legend.”



On persevering through life, in 2008

“Have a good time. Enjoy life. Life is too short to get bogged down and be discouraged. You have to keep moving. You have to keep going. Put one foot in front of the other, smile and just keep on rolling.”





On failure, in 2015

“The story continues. If you fail on Monday, the only way it’s a failure is if you decide to not progress from that. To me, that’s why failure is not existent. If I fail today, I’m going to learn something from that failure. I’m going to try again.”





On chasing your dreams, in 2016



“You can’t stop people from trying to limit your dreams, but you can stop it from becoming a reality. Your dreams are up to you. I encourage you to always be curious, always seek out things you love and always work hard once you find it.”

Bryant said a guidance counselor at school told him that he shouldn’t play basketball because “it wouldn’t amount to anything.” Bryant said the counselor’s negativity didn’t quash his aspirations, but added fuel to his fire. (Boy, was that counselor wrong.)
